Two factors should be considered when undertaking a program evaluation: the issue at hand and the stage of program development. Clarifying the issue is key to deciding what methods to use and what type of evaluation is best suited to each research question.

An important part of this justification is explaining the assumptions made about the validity of methods. Program evaluation represents an adaptation of social research methods to the task of studying social interventions so that sound judgments can be drawn about the social problems addressed, and the design, implementation, impact, and efficiency of programs that address those problems.
